Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good McDonalds Breakfast! The reality is – it isn’t healthy and is expensive to have often. One of my favorite breakfast dishes there is the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese McGriddle, the flavor of the maple pancake along with the bacon, egg, and cheese is something I have been looking to replicate for a long time. This Bacon McGriddle Breakfast Casserole was just what I was looking for to satisfy my McDonalds craving in the morning.
Bacon McGriddle Breakfast Casserole Preparation
This Bacon McGriddle recipe is pretty simple and you may have a majority of the ingredients at home if you make your own breakfasts regularly.
You can substitute the bacon for sausage, but the bacon is delicious!
Ingredients you will need include:
- Complete pancake mix
- Large Eggs
- Shredded Cheese
- Cooked and diced Bacon
- Maple Syrup
Begin with preheating your oven to 350°.
Next, grease an 11×7 or 8×8 casserole dish (double this recipe for a 9×13 dish if you have a large family or are taking this to a group event). A 11×7 or 8×8 casserole dish serves 6.
Start mixing the ingredients by combining 3/4 cup of pancake mix, 2 large eggs and 1 cup of milk in a bowl. Whisk until mostly smooth, some lumps are expected and are ok to leave.
Then add in 2/3 cup of shredded cheese (any kind is ok, I used Colby Jack, since this is what I had in the fridge), 3 strips of cooked, diced bacon, 3 tablespoons of maple syrup, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix well until all the ingredients are coated in the pancake mix.
Bake the Bacon McGriddle Breakfast Casserole for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Serving Bacon McGriddle Breakfast Casserole
Wait approximately 5 minutes after the casserole is out of the oven to cut and serve.
Serve with additional maple syrup to taste.
This Bacon McGriddle Breakfast Casserole is a great make-a-head breakfast. I like to make it on the weekends to take to work during the week. It heats up well in the microwave for a quick and easy weekday breakfast.
Other Breakfast Recipes
I also have a great make-a-head Amazing Egg Casserole. This casserole is delicious, but takes a little more preparation than the Bacon McGriddle Casserole.
